Have you ever seen a Diptic like this? It appears as though the images are "coming out" of the frames, and it looks pretty awesome. Awesome? Yes. Difficult to achieve? No! Follow these six steps and you'll impress your friends with your mobile photography skills in no time.
1. Create a Diptic and import the same photo into two frames, creating a Split Diptic. Line the images up so they look like one image separated by the frame line. Export and save it to your device.
3. Import the Split Diptic into the second layer.
4. From the Split Diptic layer, use the Mask feature and erase part of the white frame that separates the two pictures, letting the first layer show through.
5. Keep erasing until you achieve the desired effect.
6. From the Split Diptic layer, export the image.
